A resource for those starting SLP Graduate School


Just a few years ago, I was sitting in my un-classy apartment in West Georgia impatiently waiting to start SLP grad school. It's been almost 3 years and I've learned one or 2 things.

SLP Graduate School Midterm


In undergrad, studying for a midterm in a course like Biology, math, history, etc. was more about the short-term. How little can I study in order to make an A or B? or What do I need to make in order to make my desired grade? I'm sure others may disagree with this mentality, but… Continue reading SLP Graduate School Midterm

SLP Hipster Salad


Are you aware that you have a mammillary body, infundibular stalk, peduncles, and an inferior olive in your brain? Well, you do; but it sounds more like hipster salad ingredients to me.

What is a Speech-Language Pathologist?

Speech - the coordination of the brain and necessary muscles used to produce speech Language - a system of codes, symbols, and sounds… Continue reading What is a Speech-Language Pathologist?

SLP Humor Part 2


With all the social networks - Twitter, Facebook, Pintrest, Tumblr - which invade us with pictures, quotes, and opinions, I want to share a few of the things I've come across over the past few years which have made me smile, laugh, and/or agree with. I wish I had done a better job of tagging… Continue reading SLP Humor Part 2

SLP Graduate Program


  So after a few messages from some of my  Twitter followers (@SLPeepEcho) and some people who have come across my blog , I'm realizing it is difficult to find information about what a school's Graduate program is like. I have some insight into the University of West Georgia's Speech-Language Pathology Master's of Education Program. Just to… Continue reading SLP Graduate Program

Phonetics and CSD Programs


In 2001, Michael Moran and James Fitch published an article titled Phonological Awareness Skills of University Students: Implications for Teaching Phonetics. I first read the article in Summer 2010 and have thought of it often. When I was a Senior in the UWG Speech-Language Pathology Undergrad program, I offered Phonetic tutoring sessions for the rising juniors. I… Continue reading Phonetics and CSD Programs
